The Darakht-e Danesh Library is Changing Learning

The Darakht-e Danesh Library provides Free and Open Educational Resources for Afghanistan. The Library is a digital repository of open educational resources (OERs) for teachers, students, and anyone with a curious mind who wants to learn more on a particular subject.

Click this link to learn about the resources we are gathering and contact us if you can provide any of these resources.

The Library was created to increase access to quality, locally adapted educational resources, to encourage individuals and teachers to consult a wide variety of information sources in their practice, and to support teachers to adapt, create and share their own resources with other educators.

We believe digitalization can make more out of less and nurture independent learning and self-directed professional development.

An offline version of the Library, DDL Lite, runs in institutions across Afghanistan without Internet connectivity and we take requests for more installations on an ongoing basis.

Learn more about our impact, and check out our other tools for virtual and distance learning – which keep learning alive when schools are closed – DD Courses and DD Classroom.

Also check out our other virtual education tools in Afghanistan, DD Courses and DD Classrooms. DD Library gives access to learning materials including books, storybooks, lesson plans, videos, experiments, games and more in nine languages. DD Courses allow people to take full courses at their own pace on a variety of subjects, asynchronously, from any location. And DD Classroom provides a means of synchronous learning by enabling live video classes.


Darakht-e Danesh means “knowledge tree” in Dari, one of the official languages of Afghanistan. The library provides free and open educational resources.
